Big doubleheader out in Las Vegas this evening for fans of Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA. The two-game Monday slate will be televised on ESPN 2 and will feature three former Cats in action.
Up first, Jamal Murray and the Nuggets take on the Miami Heat in the 8 pm game from Cox Pavilion. Murray looks to bounce back from an ugly 2-for-11 performance on Saturday against Andrew Harrison’s Grizzlies; he had six points in that one, following a 14-point Friday debut.
Then at 10 pm, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein look to lead Sacramento to its first win of the summer. Labissiere averaged 5.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in his first two games out in Sin City; Cauley-Stein averaged nine points and 5.5 rebounds. They will be taking on the New Orleans Pelicans, featuring Buddy Hield and Cheick Diallo.
